The security challenge in automated building environments
Smart meters, lights, gates, HVAC units, security cameras, BMS (building management systems) and many more connected building automation products and systems all greatly increase the exposure to security threats and the risk of cyberattacks. Vulnerabilities in seemingly low-risk systems may end up compromising critical building functionality, even posing immediate physical threats to its occupants. For example, what would happen if by hacking a single security camera, someone is able to get through to critical building systems, such as those that control the elevators and HVAC machinery, and completely disable them? A single security incident can bring a halt to the activities of all the businesses in a single building, adding up to a liability of hundreds of thousands of dollars a day, if not more, not to mention endangering the safety of the tenants.
Strategic imperative for the entire smart building ecosystem
The recent proliferation in the number of vulnerabilities and offensive activities related to automated building systems has pushed customers and regulatory agencies to rapidly increase their demands for improved smart building security. At the same time, it has significantly increased the security-related risks to the business, reputation and bottom-line of related companies. As a result, smart building hardware device manufacturers, vendors and service providers need to address this strategic imperative by quickly scaling up their product security capabilities across all business units and product lines.
